Let's start with the first story, Tinker Belle. This had an interesting story and plot, however, there were two different artists working on this piece, one pretty good, the other might want to go back to school for. Because the artwork dramatically changed thorought the story it left me quite confused for awhile. Also, another thing that bothered me was that in the story Tinker Belle mentioned she had a sister! However, in neither the original story 'Neverland' nor the sequeal 'Hook' has she ever made a single mention of a sister. So what? Did she even love her sister to begin with or what? This question still confuses the heck out of me.
Now for Tiger Lily. When I read 'Neverland' I thought there was a previouse love interest between Pan and Tiger Lily, I WAS GRAVELY MISTAKEN! I pretty much shows how Pan was able to aquire his ability to take childrens youth and used it so he could never die. The story wasn't too bad, (since I was expecting something different). What really made this pretty bad was the artwork. For modern time comics this looked like it was made back in the 50's or earlier (or whenever comic books were made!) The artwork was horrible!
Next up we have Croc. to be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the heck this was supposed to be about! I'm not even sure what Pan even got out from the income. I liked it as by itself but by trying to piece with how Pan became ruler of Neverland, I'm very clueless.
Now for the last and final story that SHOULD have explained everything about Peter Pan and his childhood life! Unfortunately, it explained about two things but left me with a whole bunch of questions! For starters, we do discover that Pan is indead Wendy's (great?) Uncle. However the way it ended it didn't leave anyway possible, as to HOW that was possible. (Sorry I don't want to ruin it for those who have not read this yet). Also, what the heck happened to Daniel!!!!!? This whole story just left a butt load of questions for me while barely answering anything from 'Neverland'.
Overall, I consider this barely decent. Their were only two artworks thorought the stories that I liked while the rest where horribly done. Some of the stories explained things that were left questionable from the first book 'Neverland' however, it left behind even more questions, making you wonder. ARE THEY EVER GOING TO EXPLAIN ANYTHING OR JUST ADD MORE STUFF SO WE CAN CONTINUE PLAYING 20 QUESTIONS! SERIOUSLY!
I really enjoyed the Tinkerbell story that this started with. I felt like it was a pretty self contained story (with the ending tying into the main series). The others felt like less of stand alone and I struggled as a result.
As always, with this series, the art style was inconsistent and that can be confusing and distracting.
Overall, I enjoyed the art (as always it is very sexualized). I also grabbed onto Hook. So, a review on that will follow once I've completed it.
